Default W601 Sporting Life "Show'em if you got'em"

The W601's are one of my favorite sets to collect not only becasue of there size but also becasue of how early they where printed, also how many great players they have. Here are a few of my favorites. I would love to see what you guys have. Thanks for looking.

Thanks Jeff. Your postcard set is GREAT! I have had that set for sometime as welll and it is very hard to peice together to say the least. I was luck to get mine as a complete set. I should get them graded too, they look amazing in the SGC holders. Did you buy them one by one or did you buy it complete? Nice site as well!

Thanks! I started buying them one by one, then the great Steve Murray was nice enough to help me complete it. Pretty tough set to complete, but now with yours I know of at least 3 of them, probably a couple more tucked away in private collections. Did you buy your set through Lipset, I know he auctioned one off a few years ago.

No I did not buy mine from Lew. I got mine from a Ephemera show in the mid 80's. I paid $30 bucks each and $75 for the Detroit. The dealer had $50 each on them and $100 for the Detroit but I talked her down :-) Man those where the days! I know of the set Lew had, one in another collection, yours and mine. So that is a lot more than I thought complete. I wonder how many more there could be? Do you have any W601's full size?

Steve very nice W601's! I just love how they really covered all the teams. Is that all that you have? Thanks for sharing.

Default W601

Thank you for the scan of the Boston, Jeff. I love the early Carrigan shot.

Wow, nice prices! I had to pay a little more than that.

Did you see the Detroit card in SCP that recently sold for just under $10k?

I don't have any of the full-size Premiums, I did have the 1905 Detroit one but had to give it up in order to get the PC.
